Dinner cruise 2hours - at floating restaurants / dinner cruise with spectacle show:

One of the latest fashions to hit the Egyptian capital is going on cruises on the Nile to have dinner cruise. The food is excellent, the live band plays and sings Arabic classics as well as modern jazz standards, the main attraction is the belly dance routine, which usually comes on later in the program, after the main course. Tourists are sometimes invited to share a dance with the belly dancer, so shy individuals should keep well away from the center stage.

Sound and light show at Pyramids:

Each day the sun sets on the bustling city of Cairo, and the famous pyramids on the Giza plateau, south of Cairo, are absorbed into the night sky. These colossal structures are never out of sight completely, as they reawaken at night during the magnificent Sound and Light Show. Thousands of years have passed since the Pharaohs walked the Earth, but with your imagination, they will appear before your eyes. History comes to life with each show and provides the audience with a magical experience of learning about ancient Egypt, while staring up at the pyramids.... 
THE SHOW:
Each visit to the pyramids and the Sound and Light show is an enchanting experience not to be missed. We may never know exactly how the magnificent pyramids were built. The Riddle of the Sphinx may remain one of the world's oldest mysteries. We are visiting the pyramids in the 21st century, thousands of years after they were built, and they will continue to endure for generations. These magnificent towering structures manage to humble us with their size, at the same time as they testify to the great human spirit that created them. 
An evening performance at the Giza plateaus, where the Pyramids and Sphinx are specially illuminated to tell their story in the sound and light show. There are two performances each night in different languages, and starting times do vary according to the hour of dusk. Make sure to wear something warm during the winter months.
